French-inspired, the Cifonelli AW17/18 collection was dedicated to the Valencay Castle. Built in 1540, at one time the castle belonged to Napoleon who used it to host important military and royal meetings.
The collection reflects the regal heritage of the castle, with dapper, elegant suits covered in capes and long military-style coats.
Luxurious tweeds, velvet, cashmere, silk and sateen all contribute to the classical feel of the collection, which is mainly made up of beiges and blacks for a subtle grace.
